    Crucifixion

    We know the Romans used crucifixion to kill their victims.

    I remember reading that sometime before the Romans victims were killed and then crucified -- nailed to a tree -- as a warning to others, but I can't find the reference.

    Do any of you know what I am talking about?

    Thanks.

    I have just found this. Are you thinking of the Roman Argei religious ceremony?
